. The directors of the base ball associa
tion held a meeting list night to deter
mine the immediate fate of the local ball
team, and happily it was decided to stay
in it until the last gun is fired.
A meeting of tbe league directors has
been called to be held at the Peal house
in Moline tomorrow afternoon at which
time the fate of the whole league will be
decided. An cfiort will probably be
made to Ret cither Freeport or Peoria to
go in with a semi-professional team and
play out the season, or else a consolida
tion of tha Wisconsin league with the
I. I. will try to be effected. The latter
would probably be the most feasible.
Tbe home team will be kept together as
lone as there is acy prospect of playing
out the season, and the grit of the man
age men t in so doiDg should be rewarded
by liberal patronage at any games that
may be arranged.
The management has decided to p'.a? a
benefit came on Thursday afternoon by
dividing the 12 men up between Mo'.ine
and Hock island, and filling in with ama
teurs. Cunningham and Zeis will be the
Moline battery, and Bartson tnd Sage
will be in the points for Rock Island. It
will be a good game and should be liber
ally patronized by the pualic. In order
to euc"urago base ball here again it is
necessarv to give base ball the best pos
sible support. Rock Islaud has done
well, but can do better, and the benefit
tickets, which will be on sale tonight,
should meet with a ready sale. They can
be had at-50 cents ach at Thomas' drug
store, Wheclan Bros., Bijou cigar store.

BALL NOTES .
Joliet was always a Jonah.
Every member of the home tetm is a
favorite, and the boys yes, and the girls
too. would "hate to see them go.
Hurray. Fisher, Weihl, Sharp and
Bumpus Jones, of the Joliets, wanted to
go south, that's why things are tbusly.
It would fool Onion Bill and the rest of
the Joliet ball cranks if the I. -I. league
would go on without Joliet, wouldn't it?
Some of tbe local players are already
wiring with managers needing players in
order to have berths in wailing in the
event of the forced collapse of the league
Let,s hope the meeting tomorrow will
end in something being done to have the
remaining clubs play out the season .
Base ball is not ded in Rockford, Jack
sonville, Rock Island or Moline.
The Twin-City club went to the base
ball park again this afternoon, and the
game was again forfeited ta them by a
score of 9 to 0. This procedure will be
gone through with daily while the Jol
ieta are due here.
Since Murray could not keep at the
head of the list of the I.-I. League cln.s,
and McCaull could not by hook or crook
keep him there, these two base ball graces
bad no more use for the I.-I. league.
The Twin Cities have too good an ag
gregation of ball players to ignor any at
tempt to get the league in playing shape
again, and it would be a pity to see the
team disbanded after a whole season has
been spent in getting it together.
The Joliet papers say base bail is dead
in that town. There never could have
been a great deal of life there if a club
with the brilliant record of the Joliets on
the first pennant contest could not draw
support enough to run them through the
rest of the season.
It'is amusing to note with what desper
ation the Joliet correspondents of the
Chicago papers strive to have the public
believe that Joliet's withdrawal means
the destruction of the league. It is bare
ly possible that the league could live
without Joliet, McCaull, or the rest of
the Convict contingent.
The High School nine and the Ninth
Gra !e Nine of "83" played a game at
Twin City pirk yesterday afternoon that
resulted in a score of 21 to 8 in favor of
the former. Long and Noftsker were the
High school battery while Reidy, Robin
son ,nd Appelquist did the same work
t jr the -83 s. The feature of tbe game
was Spencer's brilliant work in right field
ae did not hve an error."
Surprise to All.
After using "Mother's Friend" two
